New Report: Boys Struggling in School
A Boston non-profit group releases a study today that questions whether boys are 'making the grade' in Massachusetts schools. The answer from the Rennie Center for Education Research and Policy is a resounding "no."
The group's report shows stark differences between the performances of boys and girls, especially in high school.
WBUR's Bob Oakes discusses the findings of this new research with the Rennie Center's President Paul Reville.
